I sell my happiness with words
As if it were money

And maybe
It is

Because if people have it
They smile and laugh
With joy in their bodies

Takes sadness from many
And gives them joy that cheers them up

How beautiful life would be
To erase sadness

Spread happiness to those who need it
And make their day better

I am truly happy
And so . . .
Are you
